You guys! We’ve had cooler weather this week! Low 70’s instead of high 70’s! I know.. not a major change, but around here that’s reason to celebrate. And to pull out ALL the Fall sweaters. Which is precisely what I did. :) I’ve got so many cute new sweater options to share with you! Plus an update on operation “finish the dining room.” Yea! I love this post and I haven’t even written it yet. Ha! :)
First up.. the cutest Madewell cardigan above. It keeps selling out! But I’ve seen it come back in stock so keep an eye on it if you love it! It’s so fun to wear with over the knee boots. Cardigans are too much fun this time of year. These are some of my favorites..
I’m noticing a major trend this Fall with tie neck sweaters. SO many cute options! I love this Tipped Tie Neck Blend Sweater. It comes in other colors and has a great fit.
This cute Cece Ribbon Detail Sweater is another favorite. I love this shade of blue because it’s different from other blue sweaters I have. Always nice to mix it up!
This is the same sweater in the navy. I ordered them both to try but am keeping the blue because I already have so many navy tops! Btw.. these jeans I’m wearing are favorites and they are 40% off! And my other favorite pair of AG jeans that I’m wearing in almost every picture are 30% off! Nothing like a good sale on good jeans. :)
How fun is this Cotton Wool Blend Sweater!? It might need to dip lower than 72 degrees to justify wearing it (so warm and cozy!).
Clearly the weather is not dictating my wardrobe. Too warm of a sweater? I just crank up the air. My husband loves it as much as my dad loved it when I used to crank up our heater in the summer. Drying my hair on my bedroom vent just made my perm THAT much cooler. My hair might be different, but I haven’t changed much since High School. ;) I was in the middle of styling my living room in this picture.. the shelves were a hot mess for a while! But I finally finished decorating and took pics of everything today so YEA. Fall decor coming soon! (p.s. my pheasant pillows are back in stock! Love them.. the colors are perfect for this time of year!)
It’s close, but this Bow Neck Puff Sleeve sweater might be my favorite of them all! I love the fit and the material. Plus the oversized bow and puffy sleeves are too cute. So fun with black jeans.
I also love this top tucked in with a black skirt! So easy to dress up or down.
I was wearing it the day Chuck finished my shiplap this week. If you follow me on IG you know we added shiplap in the dining room! I was going to plank these walls when we built the house, but decided not to because I didn’t want to over do it with the planked ceiling so I painted this room gray instead. I love the paint color (you can find it here), but this room gets less sun because of its location so it usually looks pretty dark. I’m ready to lighten this space up and knew that adding shiplap to the walls would do the trick!
Besides.. you can’t really over do shiplap. It’s kinda like my permed hair in high school.. the more/bigger the better. ;)
So happy to have Chuck back healthy and working again! Some of you might remember he had a terrible accident last year.. lots of recovery and physical therapy later he is doing so much better. We are thrilled to have our favorite carpenter back! He’s part of the family. :)
One wall done!
Now two! Painting starts next week. Woot woot!
Ahhhh.. shiplap.. how much do I love thee? Let me count the ways. :)
I’ve been getting a lot of questions about the type of wood, thickness, size, style I chose, etc. so I’ll write a separate post all about it. If you have any other questions ask me in the comments and I’ll add the answers to my upcoming shiplap post!
A few more favorite sweaters! Love this Blouson Sleeve Sweater. Such cute sleeves and not too heavy so it’s a good Fall transition top.
This Chunky Thermal Cowl Neck sweater? Full on FALL. I couldn’t love the color or slouchy fit more! This will be on repeat on cool days!
This cute Colorblock sweatshirt feels like pajamas! Such a soft, thin, lightweight material. I love sweatshirts like this that I can wear out and about all day and then switch my jeans to sweat pants in the evening and bam! Ready to lounge.
This Reverse Weave Champion Sweatshirt is going to be in my closet for YEARS. Such a great staple. It’s slightly fitted but still baggy like a sweatshirt. Opposite the sweatshirt above because the material is thick. So warm and comfortable and I love this deep shade of blue! Perfect for Fall/Winter days when you don’t have to dress up. I scored bonus points with my teenager when I bought this because apparently Champion is all the rage at her High School right now. She was like “mom.. you know Champion?” “Um yes El.. they’ve been around for awhile.. we made them cool back in the 90’s.” Ha. I can’t wait until she asks for Girbaud Jeans and Doc Martens.
One last sweater before I sign off! This Striped Sleeve Chenille flew in my on-line cart so fast! Then when I tried it on I was bummed when I realized it’s a little short.
But the fabric is so heavenly. Honestly just so soft and comfortable. Plus the color! Plus the stripes! So I put on a black tank top under it and SOLD.
When you love something this much you make it work.
Sweaters and Shiplap. I knew I loved this post.
*I know some of these sweaters are selling fast but check back because sizes get re-stocked often!
